Apex Legends Sun Squad Event goes live tomorrow: Full patch notes and changes

Apex Legends Revelry will receive a large mid-season update today, bringing new cosmetics, heirlooms, and more. 24 limited-time cosmetics will be added to the game, including Legendary skins for Fuse and Mirage. Ash gets an heirloom this update alongside the addition of a brand new LTM called Heatwave. Here are all the changes and additions from the new Apex Legends update.

Apex Legends 2.20 adds new limited-time mode

New LTM: Heatwave

Heatwave takes the standard trio formula, and adds hotspots to it. Players could get caught out in mini heatwave zones that deplete their health. Taking cover under objects or indoors will be the only options, save for some items in supply drops that will be revealed once the mode goes live.

24 new limited-time cosmetics and Heirloom

All 24 items will be available in exchange for Apex Coins or Crafting Metals and in Sun Squad Collection Event Apex Packs for the entire duration of the event.

Those who unlock all cosmetics before the event ends will receive Ash’s “Strongest Link” Heirloom. Players can track their progress in the Sun Squad tracker menu. 1,600 points are on offer every day, and challenges refresh daily.
